Convergence #6 Review: 5 Reasons Why It's A Mediocre Step In The Right Direction

One small step for Convergence - one smaller step towards mediocrity.

When Convergence was first announced, Jim Lee described the event saying, "Convergence is in many ways the most meta epic event we've done." Unfortunately, the first five issues of Convergence have not quite lived up to Lee€™s, shall we say, hyperbolized praise. 25 years after the game-changing Crisis on Infinite Earths, DC is still trying to recreate the magic of their first major Crisis event. Although they€™ve had a varying degree of success and failure with previous events such as the all-forgotten Zero Hour: A Crisis in Time, the much loved Infinite Crisis, and the hotly contested Final Crisis, DC unsurprisingly dropped the ball for Convergence: an event that is serving as a filler while DC moves their headquarters from New York the California. Despite having months to coordinate and hype this colossal event, DC has failed to deliver thus far for Convergence. With inconsistent art coupled with clunky storytelling, Convergence suffered a very rocky start. However, credit is due where credit is due: issue six of Convergence seems to be a turning point in the overall narrative. This issue, more than any of the others, shows how Convergence has the potential to resemble Lee€™s original remarks. Here are some of my reasons why this issue is a small step in the right direction.
